Taller de Altas Energías 2013

2013, Sep 15 -- Sep 28

Workshop dates:

September 16 - September 27 (note that 15 and 28 are travel days)

The Taller de Altas Energias (TAE) is a yearly workshop aimed at completing the education of first and second year graduated students who are starting their research on experimental/theoretical high energy physics, astroparticles and cosmology. The program of the workshop combines courses delivered by international experts and individual work supervised by tutors. Lectures will be delivered in the mornings, whereas tutorials and more specific seminars will be reserved for the afternoons. Students will work through the solutions of problems proposed by senior lectures with the help of tutors. All students are encouraged to present and discuss their work during the second week of the school.

The 2013 edition will take place at Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual between September 15 and September 28. It is supported by CPAN, Red de Fisica de Particulas, and Centro de Ciencias de Bena sque Pedro Pascual.

The Center provides many facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to interact with senior speakers and tutors and also to carry their work during the meeting (see http://benasque.org/ for information about the centre facilities). The lecture halls and the rooms for discussion sessions are located in the Center. Computing and electronic communication facilities are available.

The working language of the school will be English.
